If you have a wet or flooded basement, you probably have a foundation and/or drainage problem. With all of the rainfall that we get in our area, that is very common. Advanced Basement Solutions uses both interior and exterior system solutions. Interior waterproofing will eliminate the water coming into your basement from the inside. We often use French Drain systems to channel water away from your house, and sump pumps to rid the water that is coming into your basement. We have wall treatments for the inside of your walls and dehumidifiers if you are having condensation problems, in addition to drainage problems.
You may have noticed that you have cracks in your basement walls or cracks in your exterior brickwork. Bowed walls, cracks in drywall, a sinking foundation, and doors and windows that no longer align properly are all signs of foundation damage. Pressure that builds up around the bottom of your house due to hydrostatic pressure can cause problems in the interior and exterior of your home and in every room, not just the basement. An Advanced Basement Solutions certified foundation specialist can look at the damage and determine how best to control and stabilize your foundation, so that the shifting and bowing is fixed and will not reoccur.
We use Safewall Waterproofing Panels and dehumidifiers as a cost-effective solution to your moisture and condensation problems. These specially made panels are made to resist moisture and prevent leakage into your home or basement. The durable panels will not fade, chip, peel, splinter, or rot. They also repel mold and mildew. They can be easily cleaned by using a regular detergent. Roughcasting is an effective interior and exterior foundation solution for basement walls. First, a vapor barrier is placed on the wall to keep your walls dry. After that, we add a galvanized mesh for an extra layer of protection. A Portland mortar mix is then applied in two coats and brushed for aesthetics. This system is a permanent waterproofing solution for your basement walls. After about a month of curing, the roughcasting can be painted over. It’s important to treat your walls immediately after noticing moisture in your basement to avoid structural damage, odor, mold, and mildew. Call Advanced Basement Solutions. We have over 22 years of experience in treating the interior of homes.

Run a Dehumidifier
Most Basements are surrounded by moisture from five sides. Keeping moisture levels low is essential for any dry, healthy, livable space. It is recommended that humidity levels are below 50-60% to prevent mold growth. The condensation hose from a dehumidifier can be routed directly into the basin that houses the sump pump.
Advanced Basement Solutions has a variety of high efficiency, energy star rated dehumidifiers available. All of which include two stage air purification and filtration that provide an additional layer of protection by removing allergens, dust, and even mold spores. Call us and one of our representatives would gladly provide a quote including delivery and installation of a high capacity, energy efficient dehumidification and air purification unit.
Advanced Basement Solutions offers 0% financing to qualified homeowners through our partner lender. We will also inspect your home and give homeowners an estimate for free (for qualified buyers, restrictions may apply).
